A Mercedes-Maybach Coupe Crossover Is Something We Could See Happening

Mercedes-Maybach took us by surprise last month when they unveiled the Ultimate Luxury Concept.

Essentially Mercedes-Maybach’s first stab on an SUV for its expanding lineup, it falls very far from being just a luxed-up GL, as some speculated, taking a (weird) shape of its own.

Fueled by (mostly) negative reactions, rendering artists modified its styling, making it look more like an SUV and less like a high-riding sedan. And now we have yet another digital interpretation of the show car, which steps out of the ordinary.

Sketched by Dongwon Lee, the three-door SUV was inspired by the Maybach S-Class, Vision 6 study and GLE Coupe. The result is a posh model with Maybach’s gigantic grille sitting at the front, large air intakes in the front bumper, widened fenders, sweptback windscreen, sloping roofline and generously-sized wheels.

At the rear, the double-bubble roof is visible, as is the separated windshield, humongous diffuser and double light strip that spans across its width.

The artist’s work doesn’t include the interior, but hypothetically speaking, such a vehicle would likely have 2+2 seats, for the ultimate grand tourer experience.

In the near future, Mercedes-Maybach will launch their first production SUV to challenge the likes of the Bentley Bentayga and Rolls-Royce Cullinan. We just hope that the model will be more SUV than a sedan on stilts.
